Yale to Host Round Robin

Jan. 22, 2009

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale will look to bounce back from its first defeat of the season when it hosts Bates College, Navy, and Franklin & Marshall this weekend at the Yale Round Robin.

After losing to Trinity 9-0 on Wednesday, the Bulldogs hope to regain their form and improve to 11-1 on the season with wins this weekend.

Prior to the loss to Trinity, the Bulldogs defeated both Cornell and Western Ontario to improve to 8-0. Staying perfect was not easy though as Yale had to squeak out a 5-4 win over Cornell. The Bulldogs have also defeated Amherst, Williams College, Dartmouth, Rochester, Bowoin College, and Penn to date.
